Sticky Sesame Orange Glazed Chicken Wings

Whenever I have a crowd coming over for drinks I throw some chicken wings in the oven. They disappear almost instantly. Chicken wings are so versatile, with hundreds of flavour combinations on offer. Seeing as I am following the Paleo diet currently (you may have heard), I decided to come up with a Paleo friendly chicken wing recipe, omitting all paleo no! no!s.


  • Chicken wings
  • 1 tbsp Cumin Seeds
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 grated piece of ginger
  • 1 tsp of chopped chilli
  • 1 tbsp of rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1/2 a tsp of sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp of toasted sesame seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Place the chicken wings on a baking sheet lined with baking paper
  3. Scatter the wings with the cumin seeds and grind with black pepper
  4. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes
  5. Meanwhile, add the orange juice, honey, ginger, garlic, chilli, vinegar, oil, and soy sauce to a saucepan, bring to the boil and reduce by half.
  6. Pour the 80% of the sauce over the chicken wings and return to the oven for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven, pour over the remain sauce and scatter the sesame seeds over the wings.
  8. Serve with lime wedges and garnish with corriander leaves. Serve with a side salad.
